Another incident on wolves preying on livestock. x:
A kill order has been issued for "any offending wolves" following a depredation of four sheep near Lake Creek last week.

Suzanne Stone, Wood River Wolf Project program coordinator and spokeswoman for conservation group Defenders of Wildlife, said four sheep from a migrating band of more than 1,000 were confirmed killed by wolves last week.

First of all, thanks for sharing this! It's always interesting to see how these situations are handled, and in this case it seems a bit severe. You'd think that sending a squad of people out with guns loaded with blanks and collaring every wolf in sight would be enough, not a 60 day death sentence for every wolf in the area. Although, I suppose they know what they're doing, so I can't really question their decision. However, it does sort of bring up a question for me (if anyone could answer it would be nice). Is there any way for them to actually find the guilty wolf without endangering all of them? Just wondering :3
